An avocado breakfast bowl is a nutritious and satisfying breakfast option that combines creamy avocado with various toppings for a well-balanced morning meal. It’s highly customizable, so you can add your favorite ingredients to suit your taste. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started:
- 2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
- 2 large eggs
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Toppings (choose from the options below):
- Cherry tomatoes, sliced
- Sliced cucumber
- Sliced bell peppers
- Sliced red onion
- Sliced radishes
- Fresh herbs (e.g., cilantro, basil, or chives), chopped
- Crumbled feta cheese or goat cheese
- Cooked bacon or turkey bacon, crumbled (optional)
- Salsa or hot sauce (for a spicy kick)
- Toasted seeds (e.g., sunflower or pumpkin seeds)
- Microgreens or sprouts
- Balsamic glaze or vinaigrette for drizzling
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Slice a small piece off the rounded bottom of each avocado half to create a stable base. This will prevent them from tipping over when baking.
- Scoop out a bit of the flesh from each avocado half to create a larger cavity, making room for the eggs.
- Place the avocado halves in a baking dish or on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Carefully crack one egg into each avocado half. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Bake the avocado halves with the eggs in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the egg whites are set, but the yolks are still slightly runny. If you prefer firmer yolks, bake for a few minutes longer.
- While the avocados are baking, prepare your desired toppings.
- Once the avocado and eggs are done, remove them from the oven.
- Add your chosen toppings to each avocado half. You can be creative and arrange the toppings to your liking.
- Drizzle with balsamic glaze or vinaigrette if desired for added flavor.
- Serve the avocado breakfast bowls immediately while they are still warm.
